Update: Driver Charged With Murder After Fatal Tucson Motorcycle Crash

Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Mar 22, 2021 in Local

TUCSON, AZ - The driver responsible for a suspected DUI crash that killed a motorcyclist last Thursday has been charged in connection to the incident.

According to the Arizona Daily Star, 64-year-old James Bruce Minish was struck and killed at about 4 p.m. while he was riding his motorcycle at the intersection of East Broadway Boulevard and North Kolb Road.

Investigators say Minish was stopped in the middle lane for a red light when a 2001 Toyota Tundra pickup truck rear-ended his 2005 Honda motorcycle. The pickup then skidded into the curb lane and struck a Toyota Corolla. Two additional vehicles were also involved in the chain-reaction crash, which resulted in unspecified minor injuries.

The driver in the pickup, 35-year-old Kenneth Marvin Deeter, was arrested and booked into the Pima County Jail. Prosecutors have charged him with second-degree murder.
